Multiple Doctoral Positions in Multiscale Modeling of Friction and Adhesion

Adhesion and friction involving fluids or viscous matter, such as encountered in adhesives or in lubrication, are processes that determine everyday life, from human interaction with the environment to the function and reliability of machinery.

Phd / PostDoc position Additive Manufacturing - Polymers

A postdoc or a PhD position are available immediately at the Laboratoire de Mecanique des Solides (Solid Mechanics) at project is focused on understanding the impact of UV polymerization on the constitutive behaviour of printed polymer composites. The position is part of an ongoing collaboration with a german academic partner.

Two Faculty Searches in Mechanical Engineering at Columbia

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Columbia University has two on-going faculty searches. 

In one search, we seek candidates to teach interdisciplinary classes related to mechanical engineering design, product design, and the design processes itself, with applications across all mechanical engineering disciplines including robotics, mechatronics, mechanical systems, thermal systems and energy systems.

In the second search, we seek candidates for an Open Topic and Open Rank search.

Doctoral Position in the area of Solid Mechanics for Triboelectricity and Metamaterials

In this project, you will develop and apply numerical methods to gain insights into the mechanics of triboelectric nanogenerators and metamaterials. For both systems, the mechanical response is essential for the system’s function. In triboelectric generators, rough or patterned surfaces make contact and the mechanics of the interface determines contact area and stiffness and hence the charging efficiency. For metamaterials, the structural design of the individual unit cell determines the constitutive macroscopic response that can be designed in silico.
